The final issue of this limited series brings everything to a conclusion. The humans who use sign language put on a final battle in the ruins of the Forbidden Zone, which in the end looks like it did in the first POTA movie. Their benefactor, Aleron, the one-eyed gorilla who was banished, makes the ultimate sacrifice. These humans flee on boats across the ocean and end up passing the half-buried Statue of Liberty, which suggests this colony of "smarter" humans may make an appearance in a future series. All in all, this series fits well within the original POTA mythos.
